Devils captain Salvador back in lineup vs. Jets

NEWARK, N.J. -- The New Jersey Devils will have their captain back in the lineup against the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday at Prudential Center.

Defenseman Bryce Salvador, who missed the team's game on Saturday against the Carolina Hurricanes with an upper body injury, will replace Mark Fayne.

Salvador, who said he was injured in a Feb. 28 game in Winnipeg, was checked by doctors on Saturday. The 37-year-old Salvador has one assist and a minus-5 rating in 24 games for the Devils this season.

"I don't have any issues with where he'll be [Sunday]," Devils coach Peter DeBoer said of Salvador.

Additionally, Krystofer Barch will replace Stefan Matteau in the lineup. Henrik Tallinder will miss his third straight game with a lower-body injury.

Quote of the Day

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it. Yeah, we blew 3-2 series leads the last two years, but no one is going remember that if we go out there on Saturday night and beat these guys and go play in the Stanley Cup Final. We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.
